SOUL SEARCHING BUYING TREND 2020/21

On this summer’s journey of self-discovery consumers seek liberation from life’s problems. In a world of negativity and uncertainty we choose to escape to find beauty and contentment. Wellbeing retreats and temples provide inspiration for relaxed lifestyles and décor as people look to improve their emotional, physical, and spiritual health. In the search for greater meaning, understanding and freedom we transform our homes and outdoor spaces into personal retreats, where we can nurture ourselves and cultivate happiness.

Here is a selection of the exciting products that fit this trend…

Taylors Eye Witness

For this edition of the Premier Collection range, we have chosen Mexican Bocote wood timber to form the handles, paired with high specification Sandvik 14C28N® martensitic blade steel, secured with stunning copper & brass mosaic rivets. The boldly - figured grain of the Mexican Bocote tree lends itself perfectly to the striking blade shapes we have carefully designed. To enhance the hand feel & to improve durability & water resistance, the wood has been “stabilised” by replacing almost all the moisture in the raw timber with resin under a high vacuum. You will notice that each pair of handle scales has been kept together during all stages of production for a perfectly matched contiguous grain. Breaking with tradition, the Swedish chromium stainless steel we have selected for this knife promises unrivalled corrosion resistance & thanks to our expertise in hardening, excellent edge retention. Each raw blade blank is individually heat treated & cryogenically soaked to achieve a typical hardness of Rockwell C 60. This is not your average knife. It’s at this stage that the blade is symmetrically taper ground. Precision & consistency is achieved thanks to our suite of computer aided grinding machines. The final cutting edge is ground & polished by hand ensuring unparalleled sharpness from heel to tip. Limited edition Reassuringly, production of this edition of the Premier Collection range is strictly limited to 2,000 units & thus each piece has been individually numbered. Every knife is unique, made like no other.
